Not quite what we expected

My son took me to Calhouns for Mothers Day. We were expecting a higher end bbq restaurant with lots of different sauces brought out and the same old sides (baked beans/Cole slaw) served. But there were several in our party and we each ordered different things and only one ordered bbq! My daughter... read more

Calhouns has an excellent rep. And far as I'm concerned it is still right up there! Awesome, food very tasty and fresh

Love to eat at Calhoun's. Ribs are great as well as the pork chop.. Spinach maria and corn pudding were great. Cheesecake was awesome!

This Calhouns like all their locations has fantastic food and atmosphere. Don't leave without trying the ribs. They also have an excellent bar selection.

My family enjoyed our visit. We were seated right away on a Friday night and enjoyed good food, good service and a nice atmosphere. I was trying to eat light and was worried that I would regret not ordering the bbq. I had the turkey salad with blue cheeze, strawberries, crasins, honey pecans and such. It was delish. The turkey...

I have come to love Calhoun's for their consistency. I've not been there once & not enjoyed the food. The only thing I would change is I wish the wings were a little bigger. I recommend Calhoun's to anyone who asks.

This was our first visit to Knoxville. Our friends recommended Calhouns for lunch. I had the hickory burger and my wife had the chicken salad sandwich Both were tasty and the sides generous. By all means try the Tennessee corn pudding! Our server was Alexis, and she doted on us, explaining every item on the menu and bringing fresh glasses... More

My sons live in Knoxville, and I often fly in and out of the airport there. We make a habit of meeting at Calhoun's when we can! The ribs, burgers, salads, and locally brewed beers satisfy every time. The restaurant and the bar both have very competent wait staff, who really make the patrons welcome. Finally, the side dishes at... More

My family has been here several times. We always enjoy the hospitality. The host always greet us promptly and tell us about the specials before we even sit down. Food and service is great, but we tend to go in the middle of the afternoon after lunch rush. The microbrews are great to!

There were 17 people in our party visiting Calhoun's after graduation and they accommodated us. The food was good and the service was good, but the restaurant is a little older which is the reason for the rating. I got the turkey creek salad and it was very good. There are several locations to choose from. Recommend visiting.
